Pretty Railway Cottage next to the Voie Verte cycle path

This lovely property is about 5km from Domfront Town Centre and was one of the old railway cottages positioned as a level crossing on the Voie Verte – this is now a Greenway suitable for horse-riding, cycling and walking and stretches for hundreds of kilometers across Normandy. The current owners have enjoyed the property for over 30 years and had a ground floor extension of lounge, bedroom and shower room added about 15 years ago.  Viewing is highly recommended.

The property is situated in the north west of France,  in the department of Orne in Normandy.  The property is 5km from the medieval market town of Domfront with shops, schools and all amenities. Also nearby, you will find Lassay -les-Chateaux (28km), with its picturesque castle and lake. Bagnoles de l’Orne, about 24km away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and shops.  It is a 20 minute drive to Flers.  La-Ferté-Macé (28km away) is a pretty town with a large Leclerc supermarket. The town has a leisure lake with a swimming beach, a climbing wall and a par-three golf course.   The larger town of Mayenne is 36 km away.  The UNESCO heritage site of Mont Saint Michel is 72km and the D-Day landing beaches are just over an hour’s drive away.  The nearest mainline train station is at Flers (27km) with the TGV at Laval (71km) and airport and ferry are at Caen Carpiquet (109km).
